What’s the quickest way to add a little heat to your love life? No, it’s not splurging on sexy lingerie or stealing away to a romantic spot–though, we admit, the thought of either (or both) is pleasant to contemplate as Valentine’s Day looms closer. The truth is the route to more passionate sex is much simpler than you’d think.
All you need to say is to say these three little words while you’re in bed: “I love you.” That’s it, according to a survey of 39,000 middle-aged adults in long-term relationships. Researchers from Chapman University in California found that the more a couple communicates during sex, the closer and more satisfied they are. That not only included expressions of love and desire, but praising your partner for his efforts and speaking up about your needs.
Sounds good to us–and much cheaper than a getaway!
